  1. Those comments also apply to USB cables too.
  2. Whilst there is a USB standard, in the audiophile world, this is not the deciding factor in the sound signature of the cable. In my experience, cables will sound different based on the conductor type, quality of the conductor material and the quality of the shielding. The difference will be subtle. How much of a difference you will hear is also very dependent on how revealing your system components are - a less revealing system will not show up the differences as much as a very revealing system. There are so many variables and this is why this hobby is so interesting as it keeps pulling y
  3. Further information: I am selling a pair of the renowned Van den Hul the Hill RCA interconnect cable. Its a high end hybrid cable with a carbon connectors instead of the usual copper or silver conductors. Its part of the 3T series of hybrid carbon interconnect cable range that Van den Hul sells and the Hill sits between the lower Rock and the flagship Mountain interconnect. There are plenty of the lower model Rock on the internet and the Hill is a step up in sound quality. On my system, I found the cable to be very open, neutral, smooth sounding with very good detail ret
  4. Thanks Geoff - much appreciated! Hope you had better luck than me on the Melbourne Cup today!
  5. Further information: I am selling the well regarded Wireworld Equinox series 7 speaker cables which have been in my system for over 4 years. They are a great mid-range all rounder speaker cable. They are very neutral sounding with great sound stage width. In my view, this cable is better sounding than the QED Genesis Silver Spiral speaker cables which I had before these Wireworld cables. Product information from Wireworld can be found here: https://www.wireworldcable.com/series-7-archive.html#speaker A review of the cables can be found on Abs
  6. You can always get a BNC to RCA adaptor if that suits - I have one and can throw it in if you are keen.

  8. Further information: Up for sale is Atlas's flagship BNC S/PDIF digital cable. It is a BNC to BNC cable and it is 1 meter. Only used between my CD player and DAC. In excellent condition. Sonicnally, its very neutral with lots of clarity, resolution and tight bass. An excellent review by Hi-Fi World can be found at this link: https://www.atlascables.com/reviews-products-digital.html where it was quoted that: "The Atlas provided a heightened clarity that was sincere and, frankly, uplifting in its approach to the music
  9. I think spending the $$ on the WW Platinum may be an overkill for the Klein DAC. You are probably better off spending the money on a USB reclocker like a iFi Audio ipurifier 3 where you get more bang for your buck. I actually use the iFi Audio micro iusb3.0 to cleanup the USB signal. Honestly, the Curious USB is a very good cable for the price. The only reason I upgraded to the WW was because I got a great deal. Stick with the Curious USB for your Klein DAC as the WW Platinum will need a really good DAC to fully show the differences.
  10. I upgraded from the Curious USB to the WW Platinum Starlight 7 about a 3 weeks ago. The WW is definitely better. The difference is not night and day but more subtle. On my system, the WW seemed to have a wider sound stage, better decay in instruments, hint more detail and clarity, better precise imaging and a fuller bass. I would recommend the WW Platinum Starlight 7 USB if you are feeding it to high quality DAC. I have a Chord Hugo TT2 DAC and I think the WW Platinum complements the DAC very well as the TT2 is a detail retrieval master.
  11. Item: Van Den Hul the Mountain RCA interconnect 0.8m Price Range: up to $1,100 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: If you are selling or upgrading, please let me know. Thanks. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  12. Hi I had the same amplifier for 16 years before upgrading last year. Mine had the same crackling issue with the volume pot. Turns out that the crackling sound was due to the capacitors nearing its end of life. I had tried cleaning the volume pot with no luck. The dealer replaced the capacitors as part of the trade in (which unfortunately reduced the trade in price) and it was all good again. I didn’t get your other issues but I suspect there could be related to the capacitor issue. I would think you will need get it looked it by a amp repairer. You could try clea
  13. Great website Geoff! I think I am eligible for entry for the Mojo too with all the WW goodies I have purchased!
